HC Deb 28 January 1954 vol 522 c259W
Mr. G. Thomas

asked the Minister of Education whether she has now completed her inquiries into the circumstances under which the Cardiff Corporation entered into contract to buy land subsequently priced at £800 an acre without first knowing the price; and what decision she has reached on payment of grant on this purchase.

Miss Horsbrugh

I am informed that the Cardiff City Council propose to purchase this site at a price to be recommended by the district valuer. I can offer no observations on the proposal in advance of the submission to me by the authority of an application for approval of the purchase.
